I needed to create a prototype for an app that would aid in the cross cultural relationships between home and international students at The University of the West of England. To do so I conducted research into why students from different cultures were having trouble integrating with one another, and what other issues they faced when moving to the UK to study. I looked at articles that focused on the differences in communication styles of different cultures, spoke with the Coordinating Chaplin for the Universities Faith and Spirituality team, conducted interviews with both international and home students to find out what issues they were experiencing. I then took this information and used it to inform my further research and development of the app.
